A Somber Reminder

We talk a lot about how much Bush has screwed up here, but it's important to keep in mind that there is a very real price for a president's on the job training and the huge "miscalculations" that come with it. 1,000 men and women that didn't have to die have died. Yes, this number is lower than, say, Vietnam, by quite a bit, but the point is that things are bad there, and they're getting worse, and most of all it was all unnecessary.

That's a thousand Americans. Iraqi civilian casualties are, what, ten times that number?
